Setting the Goal

The Reddit user, duelblade77, finally achieved the 100lbs weight loss goal he set almost two years ago. Weighing 300lbs back then, he went through a lot of ups and downs in his journey. And as he lost another pound, a post about his 100lbs weight loss story went viral, inspiring many more.

Diet & Exercise

According to his Reddit post, he turned his life around with daily walking, strength training, and bouldering. He started with full-body strength training three days a week then a four day Up-Lower split. He took a break during spring weighing 250lb in May but got back to the gym for a 3 day full body during summer. He then started climbing at his local climbing gym. He also managed his calorie intake in MyFitnessPal and ate mostly fruit, veggies, and complex carbs.

Going Slow

For someone who lost more than 100lbs, duelblade77 did not have much loose skin, which he attributed to going slow. Instead of cutting calories and exercising too much too fast, he gradually decreased his calorie intake and eventually increased his physical activities.
